EV Solar roof upgrade

310 0
Hi All,

Great forum - thank you to all those that made it possible,

I have an electric van with lot of roof space that can be used for solar panels,

My plan is to install something like 1 KW worth of high efficiency flexible panels which should give me enough to run the vehicle
on sunny days and may be have some left over for charging while driving.

I am looking for advice as to the best way to wire the panels into the system? straight to the battery sys via a DC-DC converter?
or to the charge port.

As I do not have all the specifics right now - I am looking at general ideas as to how to do that?

Many thanks and keep up the good work.
